The SCA is a membership organisation with a wide range of volunteers involved in the overseeing, shaping and running of the organisation, whether that’s volunteers on the Board, on one of around a dozen committees, or in clubs. There are now a number of opportunities for volunteers to join the Board or one of the committees, this is a great opportunity to get involved in YOUR organisation, meet new people and make a difference to the future of paddlesport.
Committees typically comprise up to 9 volunteers, each appointed for a 3 year term. This summer we are inviting volunteers to apply for the following positions on 7 different committees:
